Cool, it's a nice tank to paint albeit with a deceptively large surface area! I will create the entrants list soon so progress can be tracked.

 

I still need to assemble my tank! :P

I'm still wating for some good ntural light so I can take a photo of my primed armour.

Sviars history

Olofs legacy

Armed forces

Sviar 1

Sviar 2

Sviar 3

Sviars history begins in the Great Crusade. The Orks are using a planet now known as Sviar 1 as a jump point to conquer the whole sector. The Sviar worlds was
liberated by the Luna Wolves to limit the Ork travels. Horus Lupercal sends the word of its liberation and it was decided that it should be populated.
While the first settlers was on their way, the Ork Warboss Longthooth summoned all of his forces with the intent to crush the invaders. Horus Lupercal
had already foreseen this, so heand his Luna Wolves was prepared for the arrival of the Orks. When the Orks made planetfall they were surprised by
a swift and effectively executed attack, they allbecame slaughtered by the Luna Wolves. In the rest of the sector the Luna Wolves only meet sporadic resistance and it didn't take long before the sector was liberated.

After the Heresy two Ork clanes declared war against the Sviar planets. The Evil Stompaz and the Edged Spearz under the command of Warboss
Sharpeye who was there to recapture the whole sector. At the time there were only a few scattered villages and one Imperial Guard regiment from
the Deus Hortus 129:th, who where assigned to train the newly founded PDF. The massacre was inevitably. The Deus Hortus took a last stand at the
outskirts of what is now Birch Island. The Captain Luciana sent a ditress signal and then she ordered the PDF to evacuate the settlers to the
high ground. It took two days before an entire regiment was dead. On the third day the Orks had butchered the PDF and started to hunt down the
fleeing settlers. In the midst of beheading, a large Space Wolves force led by Olof the Grim made planetfall.The Orks turned their attention to the new
deadly threat. The fierce warriors from Fenris lay down a hailstorm of botler fire whilst the Vindicators keept
pounding the Orks. But for each wave the Orks came closer and soon the Marines draw their chainsword and boltepistols. While the Space Wolves
furiously cut down the Orks, Olof the Grim fought his way to Warboss Sharpeye. He ran towards the Warboss while emptying his boltpstol,he threw it
on the ground and assaulted him with his Relicblade Isenskarp. The Warboss finally fell when Isenskarp broke through the rib cage and out through
his skull. The few Orks that remained started to flee only to die by bolter fire.

Olof the Grim Sent for more settlers, many of them where from Fenris. He made sure a new PDF force was founded, to that there were many
volunteers.
Olof the Grim also founded some cities. As a sign of gratitude and honor many citizen gave their children Fenris names and most of the places too. Sotoday there are mainly Fenris names on the Sviar citizens. The stoneworks erected to the honor of Horus Lupercal were destroyed, but he were never written out of the Sviars history. The Inquisition has chosen not to try to erase it because he declared his victory to the Holy God Emperor, and
trying to erase that could be considered heresy.

Olofs Legacy

Olof the Grim has made a huge impact on the Sviar Worlds. Even today almost every Sviar carry a Fenris name, and so do places.
The first PDF soldiers wore a uniform that resembled the Space Wolves power armour. Today these colors can be found on every Sviars shoulder
armour as a sign of respect and as a honor of Olaf the grim.

In a big underground vault there is a humble altar. On that altar has Olofs relicblade Isenskarp and his two cracked shoulder guards on it. Overt the
relicblade hangs a picture depicting Olofs triumph over the Orks. The left wall from the vault door is a work of art depicting the Holy God Emperor in
the Great Crusade. This room is forgotten since hundreds of years ago. It does not show up on a blue print. The architect, the Engineer and
the few workers took this secret with them to their graves.
This construction was ordered by the Secret priesthood, and only they have the location written somewhere in one of their million archives. There are some clues foundin a small file in the Space Wolves older data library. Legend has it that there is a tomb near the right wall the stone lid is
depicting Olof the Grim. The legend does not say whether the tomb is empty or not. Only the secret priesthood knows the truth about the legend.

Holidays


"The day of the Wolf" and "the Olofs day" are holidays on all of the Sviars planets. They are celebrated with a big feast to honor their heros.

Armed Forces

Every Sviar has to do some service to the PDF, after that they can choose to enter the training program for the PDF. It does not matter how skillful
you are, if someone have trouble completing the a theoretical or a practical course, the teachers is going to give you some extra attention. Even if it
takes a extra year or two, everyone at the end meets the criteria to enter the PDF. There are always helpful teachers, fellow cadets and PDF
volunteers.

Once in the PDF, you do a two year basic training and after that you choose a area of expertise followed by hard training. You can choose several
areas of expertise. This is followed by an intense and long regular training.

A PDF sergeant is a PDF soldier that has excelled in most of the expertise areas and has showed worthy in other ways too, like manner, helpfulness
and to inspire the PDF soldiers to great deeds. The high ranking PDF officers can promote a experienced Sargeant.

When deemed ready you can choose to join the Imperial Guard.

Sviar 1

Sviar 1 is a militarized world. Every city is fortified in some way. The worlds capital Upsala is a huge fortress, the walls is 70 meters tall, and the Planetary Governor has
his mansion here. Upsala has the biggest worship temple in the entire sector, erected for the Emperor. It is densely ornated, and the two headed
eagle at the top shines bright over the big capital and can be seen from the nearest city Draup Nir. In the center square there is a big bronze statue
of Olaf the Grim. Upsala has its own force ina addition to the PDF. They recruit among the toughest soldiers from the PDF to the defence of the
Capital. They serve as a elite unit, and train intensively six days a week.

Upsala also houses a huge industry district. In the centre lies an Adeptus Mechanicus temple ornated with a big cog over the entrance. The big
temple houses a regiment of Skitarii. Their orders are to help the PDF defend Upsala. Should the wall fall, then their final stand should be by the
temple. The temple has a secretive priesthood, the Inquisition has no more data on them.

In a rebuilt ancient castle in the Administratum district lies a Departmento munitorums Commissariat. The Sviar soldiers only obey Sviars own
Commissars. To assign a non-Sviar commissar to a Sviar unit is to send him/her to an early death, as Sviars refuse to obey a Commissar who
do not understand their culture, situation, tradition and have respect for their history. In a nearby building lies the Divisio Linguistica. One of their
many duties, is to translate a very distorted form of High Gothic to High Gothic.

In the scholar district lies Sviar University, it is the sectors oldest and largest. The big complexes houses many guest teachers from all over the
universe. Nearby is Sviarslargest hospital, although it isn't Upsalas only hospital, this has the most advanced equipment for the most difficult
procedures. On top of the roof you'll find a large aircraft pad. The V-shaped building in the southern part of the district is a research facility.

East of the Industry district lies a mining plant. There is a frequent shuttle traffic with minerals from the inhabited nearby planets and the mining town
Rykva that lies far North on Sviar 1. On Svair 1 the mining industry is very big and the quality on the finished products is excellent. Therefore
Upasla has a Forge World. It produces all the equipment for the Sviars Imperial Guard and for the PDF.

Half of the World is covered with forests to provide air for the population. If a new city is to be built the engineers must calculate how many if any trees should be cut down to make room for a new city. Right now there is room for at least ten more cities without having a shortness of air.

Sviar 2

Sviar 2 is an agriculture world. It produces and supplies food for the whole Sviar and the rest of the sector. There is a lot of water on Sviar 2 and the
soil is still in perfect condition. Kettle is mainly breed for fertilizer, but can be slain for festivities. On Sviar 2 there are only a few farm villages, most
of the surface is covered in cereal fields. Some farmers are stationed here permanently, while some work for a month and after that take the shuttle to Sviar 1 for a month leave and return to work the following month.
The shuttle base on Sviar 2 is a fortified station, from some angels it resembling a fortress. The station provide the farmers with supplies like pesticides and work related equipment. The shuttles also leaves with crops barley and other key food ingredients to different locations. The shuttle station is
manned by 200 PDF guards,they do all the chores. They too, like some farmers work in a monthly shift. The farmers use huge harvesting vessels.
Every day the work from morning to evening due tothe vast area they have to cover each day. Once a year they organize the farm day. It is held
near the shuttle station and in mid shift so everyone can participate. It contains the traditionally race with harvesting vessels, a market, freshly grilled kettles and more homebrew
alcohol than they can drink. There is also a competition whichfarm village that has the best brew. It is in mid shift near the station so the PDF guards
can intervein if things get out of control.
There is a big closed area that contain forest and fern like plants that produces rich oxygen for the fields and for the population. All other fauna has
been wiped out to make room for the cereal fields.

Sviar 3

Sviar 3 is a moon that orbits around the Sviar 1. Sviar 3 is covered with a dense jungle, swamps and variety of plants, some of them is very toxic.
In these jungles lives many small tribes. The two biggest ones is called Vodurs and Ulfurs. Every year they meet at the tree of Aquila, which is two
trees that has grown together in a way that itresembles the two headed eagle. The tribesmen and tribeswomen belive that this is a sign from the Holy God- Emperor. Beneath that tree they fight to win a place in the PDF. As service for the Holy God-Emperor is the highest honor they can receive.
Most of them is skilled survivalists and often qualify for Imperial Guard duty, so they are the only force that will be sent to death world assignment.
Sviar 3 is a defense moon. Runways for the Naval Fleet runs beneath the surface. There are kilometers of runways for a lightning attack on any
oncoming threat. Scattered along Sviar3 is hidden long range defense missiles.

I, GrandMasterAralia, vow to complete two drop sentinels (one squadron, okay right?) for the 73rd Elysian Recon Company. Pictures as soon as I can get my laptop working again... Burnt adapter cable despite my best attempts to appease the machine spirit within.

Initial plan of painting my venators dropped due to lack of time, I figured I'd have a better chance at finishing the two sentinels compared to three tauros venators.

Good luck all, praise the Emperor and may the machine spirits of your projects remain cooperative!

A write up of Isabel's Vengeance I've been working on.


 

The Legend of the Haunted Leman Russ
 
 
 
The Joutinheim 798th Armored Regiment had always had close ties with The Order of the Blushing Maiden since it's order's founder rescued one of the regiment's Commissars leading to the order's founding. But commanding the regiment in it's “haunted” Leman Russ Punisher is an honor that is given to only the most compitent and qualified. So guarded is the position, that it's recipient and crew is chosen by a board made up of the Commissariat and the Cannoness of the Order. The following is the tale of how the Haunted Leman Russ came to be.
 
Long ago on planet Joutinheim, the demons of chaos sought to claim the planet for their perverse dark gods. The brave men and women of the Joutinheim 798th Armored Regiment and the Order of the Blushing Maiden were fighting valiantly, Sister Isabel's squad had managed to locate and engage the enemy demon prince. With a mighty backhand from the demon her squad was decimated, and Sister Isabel was mortally wounded. Before the demon prince could land the killing blow a hail of shells landed square in his back. The armored regiment's remaining Leman Russ punisher had broken through the lines and lent its aid to Sister Isabel. The demon buckled under the flurry of rounds that pelted it to near submission. In an incredible act of strength the demon smashed into the tank and stunned the heroic crew inside, effectively silencing the Punisher cannon that had left him clinging to his own life. The demon then extracted his revenge by pulling out the crew only to rip them apart like dolls. The Scions using the tank as cover flanked the demon and opened fire with their Hot shot lasguns. Annoyed at the pesky soldiers he turned and gave chase. Isabel took the opportunity while the demon was distracted to climb in to the tank and reawaken the Punisher cannon. Gears and servos whined in protest as she brought the turret to bear on the demon's head. “AVE IMPERATOR FOUL DEMON!!!!!!!” she cried as the cannon perforated the demon with countless rounds. The demon was reduced to a pile of offal and pink mist as the main gun expended the last of it's ammo. As Isabel lay dying in the turret, she spoke a final prayer. “Holy Emperor....if it is your will to call me to the Golden Throne....then I eagerly await....your beckon...but my work is not yet done...if you can see fit to grant my one selfish wish to....see all your enemies destroyed before I report to your side, You would have my eternal gratitude.”
After the battle, and once the Punisher was repaired, the new crew reported hearing war hymns when the engine was idling, and the commander reported hearing the cry “AVE IMPERATOR!!!” as the Punisher Cannon unleashed it's payload. The Adpetus Mechanicus investigated and found the Tank functioning as normal. The Cannoness of the order, along with the regiment's Commissar agreed, that due to Valiant effort of Sister Isabel she would be canonized and made a Saint of the Order. And the Leman Russ that slayed the demon prince would be the Unit's standard bearer, and the Crew chosen based on merits both the Order and the Unit held in high regard.
 
 
Current Crew of the Leman Russ Punisher “Isabel's Vengence”
 
Commander: Colonel Ulfric Harman
Driver: Sgt Flykr Ranagan
Main Gunner: Sister Mary Pendragon
Left Sponson Gunner: Cpl Reggie Marbot
Right Sponson Gunner: Sister Geniveve Perna
Hull Gunner: Sister Fraiya Gunier

Keen to get stuck in I see! Don't forget that you must have the completed tank picture by the deadline for it to count; you've got to win the battle before you get the rewards ;)

would militarum tempestus vehicles count since they are their own standard codex? the unfortunate reality is that they lack a vehicle with no transport capacity. all you have is the Valkyrie or the taurox prime.

Sadly not aura, as the Scions only get vehicles with a transport capacity - that was the previous challenge. Do you have any other Guard vehicles?

 

Good to see more entries (my likes still need to recharge it seems), this no doubt pleases the Emperor to see such devotion!

I'm assuming you'll be repainting your Baneblade? Would this be repainting the majority of the tank?
